Portable Dust Collector Captures Contaminants at the Source, Providing High-volume Collection with Minimal Energy Consumption

Airflow Systems, Inc.  The PCH Series of portable dust collection systems provides source-point collection of airborne contaminants and prevents contaminants from migrating throughout the facility to settle on equipment and fixtures, contaminate product, or present physical hazards to personnel.

The PCH Series collection and filtration system is suitable for a wide range of particulate types, including:  chemical, pharmaceutical, and food processing dusts and powders; buffing, polishing, and grinding dusts; weld smoke; fumes and odors; even oil mists. Collection efficiency is optimized, power consumption is reduced, and operator obstruction is minimized due to the PCH Series patented

E-Z Arm® High Flow Extractor arm design. The E-Z Arm® close-profile, external arm support eliminates the air flow resistance common with internally supported arms; enabling the PCH Series to produce higher air flow levels with lower power requirements than competitive units.  The PCH Series also includes a dynamically balanced, non-sparking, all-aluminum motor, designed and built by Airflow Systems, to enable the compact, easily maneuvered PCH unit to collect contaminants directly at the source without risk of igniting volatile dusts.

The PCH Series includes a PCH-1 model, available with a 0.5, 1.0, or 1.5 HP motor capable of air flow rates up to 800 CFM; and the PCH-2 model, available with a 1.0, 1.5, or 3.0 HP motor capable of air flow rates up to 1,200 CFM. The PCH Series of portable dust collectors includes the patented Airflow Systems Vibra-Pulse

Filter Cleaning System that utilizes pulsed, compressed-air technology combined with a filter-rapping action to clean the filter and return the filter to an 80% dust holding capacity. The PCH Series is offered in standard construction of 14/16 gauge welded steel or available stainless steel construction for sanitary applications. The PCH Series offers a range of options including custom cartridge media to suit various applications; 99.97% HEPA, 95% DOP, and odor after-filters; a 65-watt halogen light kit; and a pressure gauge to automatically alert operators when filters require cleaning.
